Chainmail is one word. Unless you're talking post office type mail??

Otherwise, it looks quite tasty!

I understand Zythos is a blend C hops and other, less sought after hops, and is intended almost as a single hop for IPA style beers? I'd expect it to have Centennial in it. what's been your experience with it? I've never used it or Falc.Flight, TBH. I've always intended to pick some of each up and SMASH them.

Yes "chainmail" is one word, lol... and you are correct about zythos, has some characteristics of centennial, in my experience it imparts tangerine, citrusy, and pine notes. Substitute Amarillo, it was what we used before zythos . JakenBacon, You should try our Brewbonic Plague Imperial stout

Just wanted to stop in and say hi. I'm new to the site and after quitting brewing for a year after a batch of gushers, I'm attempting to revive my love for brewing by making your Chainmail Pale Ale!

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/salv...18/index2.html

Here is a link to the thread that was started on this journey. I made it last night, so excited to see how this turns out. Thank you so much for the recipe.

Hi again! I just tried my first bottle of this to see how it was doing. I bottled one week ago and on day 7 (yesterday) I opened one just to see how it was doing and to appease my impatience. To my surprise it was carbonated beautifully, nice head, tastes amazing.

Absolutely in love. This will likely be my go to recipe whenever I am not trying something new. Thank you.

I like this recipe a lot! I have just purchased some Muntons LME (I'll do the conversion) and just ordered Centennial and Zythos by coincidence... Looks like we have a winner!

It strikes me as odd to see Zythos used as a minor part of a blend. But if the results meet the goal then it doesn't matter much, does it?

I just made an all Zythos IPA. It's got a rich tropical fruit (pineapple, passion fruit) aroma by itself.

Gonna pull the trigger on this today. Doing a partial mash though, steeping some crystal 10 and 20 to add to 6.6#'s of LME and sticking with Zythos and Centennial (5ozs total!).
